Kingston demo 64GB of memory on GIGABYTE X79-UD5

One of the most eye-catching technical specs regarding the Intel’s new Sandy-Bridge E platform revealed at IDF last week, is without doubt its quad channel memory infrastructure. While today’s Sandy Bridge uses dual channel memory and the X58 Gulftown platform boasted triple channel, the forthcoming X79 platform is going all out with four channels of DDR3 . As if in celebration, Kingston had a demo at IDF that showed what you can do with four channels of RAM, demoing a GIGABYTE X79-UD5 board packing 8 x 8GB DDR3 DIMMs for a massive 64GB of system memory!

  1. all the 8GB memory modules are unbuffered DIMM (UBDIMM)? Isn't UBDIMM getting unstable above 32GB total system memory threshold?

  2. No problem that we know of dg dk, 64GB unbuffered dimm is an Intel spec. Thanks for the heads up, we'll keep an eye out for instability issues.
